Organisation Information:

Mind the Gap is England's largest learning disability theatre company that creates work for UK and international audiences. Our vision is to work in an arts sector where there is equal opportunity for performers with learning disabilities: a world where performers are trained, respected and employed equally, and feature every day on our stages and screens. We work in partnership with learning-disabled artists to deliver a bold, cutting-edge and world-class artistic programme that impacts locally, nationally and internationally. Work that excites, surprises and challenges audiences. Our aim is to make great theatre that makes audiences think differently. By 'theatre' we don't just mean shows that you can see in arts and theatre venues, but also performances and events in different spaces and places.
